Winston fights them on the pitches

Must say I'm quite hopeful about the signing of New Zealand defender Winston Reid. He impressed me in the World Cup and even scored a last minute equaliser against Slovakia. The spirit of the Kiwis was admirable in those three draws and if Winston's anything like Ryan Nelson at Blackburn we'll have a bargain.

The good thing about Kiwis is that they give it everything, which will surely endear him to the Upton Park faithful. Reid's also the first Iron of Maori descent — will Specs and co now be joining him in doing the Haka to intimidate the opposition? Dicksy would certainly have enjoyed the odd war dance.

We've also signed Ben Haim on a five-month loan and although many fans have reservations, he's still only 28 and surely worth a punt on those terms.

Meanwhile we've won the SBOBET Cup on pens after drawing 0-0 with Deportivo. Better end the season now…
